I am planning to take the car to another service center, But I thought I will ask this to the i10 Auto owners prior to that.

How does the O/D button in the gear lever work? Also, What is L2? I do not see any changes it makes - I may be using it wrongly.

This is only for hyundai i10 A/T:

O/D button in the gear lever is a toggle switch. If you press it, you would see the words 'O/D off' in the warning lights area.
The Hyundai i10 AT gearbox is a 4 speed gearbox with 1 overdrive gear ratio.
O/D off means that the gearbox shall limit itself to only first 3 gears.
This is useful if you are in slow to medium traffic and do not want to upshift/downshift constantly to the 4th gear.

L2 limits the gearbox to only the first 2 gears. useful in slush/snow driving

L limits the gearbox to only the first gear. useful in slush/snow driving.

For 95% of driving in normal cities - the D mode is enough.

Thanks for the very clear explanation. I think I need to start using O/D properly.

Default Re: My New Hyundai i10 Automatic

Finally parted ways with our Hyundai i10 Automatic last week after owning it for 7 years and 8 odd months with 45,000 kms on the ODO. Ever since i read here on team-bhp that the i10 model has been discontinued, we consciously decided to sell the car. Mechanically sound but various niggles, some due to old age. Anyways, the hunt for a sub-10 lac car begins to give company to my Vento Automatic (Just 16 odd k/s in 5 years 8 months). Watch this space!

P. S. Mods, you can now close this thread.
